Re: Donna Vekic

She had 126 points coming off her ranking between June 25th and after the US Open, she covered it this week.

Re: Donna Vekic

Honestly I can see grass being Donna's best surface. She has a big serve and flat groundstrokes, she can definitely be dangerous.

Re: Donna Vekic

she'll play doubles qualifying at wimbledon with Bratchikova bratchikova doesn't appear to be in very good form though. i wonder how this pairing came about.
great idea to get a few matches in next week without it counting against her age restrictions

ugh, why do they all suck????????

Re: Donna Vekic

Now that was one rock solid performance by Donna, well done girl!

Did she just beat world number 24? That surely sounds impressive for a 16 y.o. these days. Yes, Sorana was unrecognizable today and was basically on a self-destruct mode from very early on, but Donna showed great focus in quite horrible circumstances and the ability to control her level of tennis in a match like an experienced pro. She pretty much didn't try to do a lot of the extraordinary, but instead went for just enough to make a win. It's refreshing to find someone on the WTA tour who is able to play a match without going through five million meltdowns. Serve was working wonders today, groundstrokes were very useful and overall she pressured her opponent too much to let this one slip away.

Tomorrow she could again face Rybarikova, who is a set up at the moment and we all know she already defeated her once before. Conditions will be different this time around though. Donna is certainly better than a year ago and she obviously feels great on grass (but then again, Rybarikova loves grass too). If she can focus her mind on tennis I think she can win, but this is already beyond my expectations for the week. New c-h ranking is coming up on Monday!

So happy for Donna! I'll get to watch her on tv too, which is better than a bad Internet stream

I hope she faces Magda
Both are great on grass!

You have no agency in this match. You might start to wonder if you have free will. Perhaps solipsism is true after all - is it Jankovic's world and you're simply allowed to live exist in it? It's basically existential waterboarding.

A great win today in difficult circumstances with all the delays.

I've been to the Birmingham tournament once and they do seem to be cursed with bad weather in this week. It rained part of the day when I went and the temperature was certainly not summery. Another year I had a ticket but didn't even bother travelling there because the forecast was so bad. A shame because it's a beautiful club and a good one for fans.

Despite the rain today they still seem to be reasonably on track and Donna is handling it well.

Interesting. She said a couple of months ago she sucks in doubles. And Bratchikova sucks at everything. Interesting.. Wish she played with Ajla.
